The Internet’s Own Boy follows
the story of programming prodigy and information activist Aaron Swartz.
From Swartz's help in the development of the basic internet protocol
RSS to his co-founding of Reddit, his fingerprints are all over the
internet. But it was Swartz's groundbreaking work in social justice and
political organizing combined with his aggressive approach to
information access that ensnared him in a two-year legal nightmare. It
was a battle that ended with the taking of his own life at the age of
26. Aaron's story touched a nerve with people far beyond the online
communities in which he was a celebrity. This film is a personal story
about what we lose when we are tone deaf about technology and its
relationship to our civil liberties.

Wonderful film, Wonderful life
Aaron's story is heartbreaking, and this film does an excellent job of explaining who he was, and what motivated him. We are introduced to an amazing child, then to a courageous and principled man who tried to right the wrongs he found in the world, even when he thought he wasn't strong enough. His legacy will live on through this look at his life, tragically cut short by his own hand when the government relentlessly decided to make an example of him for believing that knowledge should be free. If you are reading this review, he touched your life.
Thank you to the filmmakers for this delicate work, and to Aaron's family and friends for their courage and candor.

The φ could also be the base; since 1 < φ < 2, the only digits that could be used are 0 and 1. If it's base φ, then
